The facility is lovely with a great view of the elk ranch across the highway. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. A docent, who gives a wonderful guided tour, is available on Tuesday... more »
This is our second time here, and it is a beautiful museum in winter or summer. We love the outside sculptures as well. The gift shop has some great local artworks and always a stop when we are in... more »
Architecturally impressive building with a variety of pieces both old and new. The art was excellent however for me the building and its placement up on a hill overlooking the national elk refuge was the winner. No elks were seen, but the weather made it a perfect time to stand outside the museum and soak in nature's beauty.
First: a brief confession: I never actually went in. We had so much fun outside that we ran out of time to actually see the museum. The sculptures outside were beautiful! If you've got a spare minute, it's completely worth a stop! The view from the top is breathtaking.
